Default Search Results Differ In Different Countries??

Hello

For Google search, type in "sourcing service"+"China".

In China, our web appears at the 1st page, No. 10.(the last one of the first page)

It is said, in different countries, the results are different. Help me to prove it or its not!


Many Thanks for any feedback!

When i search google.com, as I normally do, I do not see your site listed

I am in the United States.

With country specific search properties such as Google China, the search algorithm attempts to sort results by top level domain. So, yes the results would be different for each country specific site.

Thanks Logan and David.
In China, google dotcom directly lead you to googledotcn, and I just modified to use google's English home page. Found that with the same key words, my web's ranking at the 48.
Hack, Try with other key words, my web is just a bit better than in the sand box!

How it comes? I know there are many experts here,to me, its rejoiced too soon ? (With Yahoo and MSN's searching, my web also ranks pretty high!)

Thanks.

This is new to me. I didn't know that search results are different in some countries. I thought it only happens to google.cn since it's only in china that Google is being monitored or something (due to China's policies, I think that was).... or am I outdated on this sort of thing?

You are bit outdated perhaps, its as David explained and although .cn is a bit unique also applies to other countries. For example, google.es results are different than google .com although they can easily switch to .com results as well.

Regarding the scenario described, I am not positive but my first reaction is to setup (and promote) a .com site unique from your .cn with United States hosting. The .com domain and hosting location can play a role based on my experiences. Maybe have a .cn version targeting your local geographic area and then an alternative site .com targeting the other google results. Would that be something you could do?

Logan, Thanks.

I searched with google dot jp! Although the ranking about the same with google dotcom's, but there are seveal results in Japanese...

Now I can see logically, man, that means a lot of business in Each country for Google. And google may have the tech to generally balance the rankings.
Now I doubt even in U.K. and U.S., google dotcom may have different results.
Google can make it and make the majority happy then its Okay.Thats maybe 2 folders money than a same search result.

I mean using the same google dotcom in two different countries it may still has
relatively small different, but for some small companies, a big difference.

Regarding dot cn, I do not think its a problem, because many big Chinese organizations with dot cn still can have a top ranking.

Joe

I just tried goog.co.uk and google.tw, they have the same results, our page appears at the first page No. Ten.

I guess whereever(other than U.S.), you are leading to your own country's google.
